Mary Ann "Polly" Strother Edmonston
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 16, 1803
North Carolina, USA
Death: Nov. 27, 1882
North Carolina, USA

Ninian Edmonston married Mary Ann Strother, often called Polly Ann, on 14 Jan 1823. She was born 16 Oct 1803 in North Carolina, and Charles N Edmonston says she was probably the daughter of John Strother, a man very active in land speculation in western NC as well as in Tennessee. If he is the right man, he was dead before 1816. Ninian and Mary Ann named their first son, born 5 Jan 1824, John Strother Edmonston, which makes a good case for her parentage. Sadly, their son John died 8 Sept 1824. Their next son was named for Ninian's father, Bazil Brooke Edmonston. Another son, William Tresillian, died at age 2 mo.

Sadly, of the six sons of Ninian Edmonston none of them had any children. Ninian made his will on 19 Oct 1867 and died 18 Mar 1868(?). He appointed his only two living sons, Bazil Brooke Edmonston and Thomas Benton Edmonston as his executors. Mary Ann died 27 Nov 1882.

Every one needs a flower for their eyes to enjoy and birds singing for their ears to enjoy. Rest in peace.
